1When Israel went forth from Egypt,
The house of Jacob from a people of strange language,
2Judah became His sanctuary,
Israel, His dominion.
3The sea looked and fled;
The Jordan turned back.
4The mountains skipped like rams,
The hills, like lambs.
5What ails you, O sea, that you flee?
O Jordan, that you turn back?
6O mountains, that you skip like rams?
O hills, like lambs?
7Tremble, O earth, before the Lord,
Before the God of Jacob,
8Who turned the rock into a pool of water,
The flint into a fountain of water.
